Lobster Recipes: Smoked Lobster Tails (+ More Tasty Dishes To Make!)
Butterfly The Lobster Tails
- Preheat your smoker to 225°F (105°C). Meanwhile, butterfly your lobster tails by using kitchen shears to cut down the middle of the top of the shell. Cut carefully all the way to the end of the tail and stop (be sure not to cut the meat underneath).2 lobster tails
- Gently devein the tail and remove any grit or dirt if necessary. Flip the tail over and press gently on the ribs (the underside of the shell). Flip it back cut-side-up and use your fingers to gently separate the meat from the shell all the way down to the end of the tail, leaving just the very end attached.
- Lift the meat up and out of the shell (tail still attached) and pinch the shell closed underneath so the meat can rest on top of it. Repeat with each lobster tail.
Smoked Lobster Tails
- Once your smoker has preheated, place the lobster tails on the grate meat-side-up in a spot that is over indirect heat or as far from heat as possible.
- Close the door and smoke until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C), about 1 hour.
- Just before your lobster is done smoking, melt the butter in a small microwave-safe dish and stir in the Cajun seasoning. Remove the smoked lobster tails from the smoker and brush the Cajun butter over the meat. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired and serve immediately.1 ½ tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, fresh parsley
Equipment You May Need
- Hold off on seasoning your lobster tails until after they have been smoked. This ensures that the smoke can really permeate the meat.
- Do not overcook your lobster tails. It will cause a rubbery texture that is unappetizing.
- To store: place your smoked lobster tails in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- To reheat: I recommend only making enough smoked lobster tails to eat at the moment. The more you reheat the lobster, the tougher they will become. However, you can reheat the tails in the oven at 350°F (177°C) while loosely covered in foil.
